Re: Adjusting Recording Volume

Is there a way to reduce the volume when I am digitizing tapes from an old Sony 250A that does not have a output volume adjustment? I started digitizing by playing tapes on a TEAC 1230 with an output volume adjustment, which has worked for more than a dozen tapes, but I now am working on other tapes...

Re: can't record cassette with Behringer UCA202

I hit this bug again today, after having updated Mojave last night. It may be the first update I've run since I started using Audacity, and I hadn't expected the bug to reappear, but when I looked up the error code ad searched the boards, I found the fix and it worked again.

Re: Beginner: Error 9986...Help :)

I am getting this now with a Behringer USA202. It had worked before and I thought I had it all working right, but I must have screwed up something I am running 2.4.2 on a macbook air running OS10.14.6 Mohave. When I started typing this I decided to try quitting and restarting Audacity, and doing tha...

Re: Adjusting Recording Volume

I'm having a similar problem that differs in detail. I have several dozen reel to reel tapes i am trying to digitize. The recorder I have is an old TEAC 1320 deck and the tapes were made on other recorders. Some tapes are audibly fainter on one channel, and I am trying to balance that while digitizi...

Re: can't record cassette with Behringer UCA202

Tried it (with a bit of fumbling about), and when I switched on the Built-in-mike on Audacity and started talking, the bar lighted up and I started seeing input on the meter. I then stopped the recording, switched on the usb audio codec, turned on the cassette player, and it started recording, playi...

Re: can't record cassette with Behringer UCA202

I only see one copy of Audacity on my Macbook Air, version 2.4.2 from June 20, 2020, but I do have an Audible, but I do have a .dmg version of AUdible somewhere on the machine that shows up on a search. I don't have any other audio editing software on the Mac, but I do have some apps that use audio:...

Re: can't record cassette with Behringer UCA202

Thanks, I'm on Mojave and I hadn't thought of that, but when I checked it I see much like what you did and Audacity is listed there and is checked, so I guess that's not the problem. I probably should add that I have been working on a MacBook Air (13-inch 2017) with 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory, 1.8 GH...

Re: can't record cassette with Behringer UCA202

Yes, the meter on the sound Preference jumps up and down. WHen I load Audacity it acts just the same way and doesn't show any evidence of input.

can't record cassette with Behringer UCA202

I have followed the instructions for recording from an old cassette player with RCA ports using the Behringer UCA202 device, and have verified that I am getting sound into the Behringer by monitoring it with headphones, then turning them off. I have the Audio MIDI setup set to 2-channel 16 bit 44.1 ...
